Divide a string in N equal parts in C++ Program

In this tutorial, we are going to write a program that divides the given string into N equal parts.

If we can't divide the string into N equal parts, then print the same thing. Let's see the steps to solve the problem.

• Initialize the string and N.

• Find the length of the string using the size method.

• Check whether the string can be divided into N parts or not.

• If string can't divide into N equal parts, then print a message.

• Else iterate through the string and print each part.

Example

Let's see the code.

Live Demo

#include <bits/stdc++.h>
using namespace std;
void divideTheString(string str, int n) {
int str_length = str.size();
if (str_length % n != 0) {
cout << "Can't divide string into equal parts" << endl;
return;
}
int part_size = str_length / n;
for (int i = 0; i < str_length; i++) {
if (i != 0 && i % part_size == 0) {
cout << endl;
}
cout << str[i];
}
cout << endl;
}
int main() {
string str = "abcdefghij";
divideTheString(str, 5);
return 0;
}

Output

If you execute the above program, then you will get the following result.

ab
cd
ef
gh
ij
